Ivo Perelman & Matthew Shipp

Piano – Matthew Shipp
Tenor Saxophone – Ivo Perelman
 

"Each a brilliantly iconoclastic artist on his own, Perelman and Shipp together create a third persona entirely – a four-handed, double-sided improviser capable of the most extraordinary flights."            Ivo Perelman / Matthew Shipp Duo

"Perelman and Shipp show unbounded artistic maturity that can be placed among the most important representations of the sax and piano jazz duo (Waldron-Lacy, Braxton-Cryspell, Bergman-Parker). Percorsi Musicali

"Art at the highest level. You would expect no less than that from artists the caliber of Ivo Perelman and Matthew Shipp." Something Else! Reviews

"Carving their place as one of jazz history's great duos." Neil Tesser, Examiner.com


"The deep connection between Perelman and Shipp, both masters of improvisation, is a real clairvoyance…their empathy is amazing." All About Jazz

"A dazzling display of spontaneous playing, accomplished by two voices in synch with each other both musically and spiritually." David Liebman saxophonist

"The lively and winding interweaving of the sax within the musical foundation constructed by pianist Matt Shipp produces fascinating results." Culture Jazz

"The Gift is on high level, and especially rise in the final part of the CD, introduced by Shipp’s dry lyricism, to the suspended "Without Any Warning," when the double bass with the bow opens wide space to the music, to the conclusive "Enlistment," splendid tenor sax solo , where Perelman’s great sound display the legacy of Hawkins, Webster and Rollins."

Siann Lofhai, delicate noise songs

After spending her childhood on a South Pacific island, Siann Lofhai settles in France.
Her encounter and the experience shared with some artists in the collective called CAVAL in Paris is decisive : she is introduced to stage practice in shows associating painting, circus and sound performance.

Siann Lofhai leans towards a dreamy form of curiosity, and her music invites us in a strange world, full of both lightness and darkness.
The instrumentation based on electric guitar and completed by samples creates a backdrop of haunting sounds, in which the voice introduces a disturbing sense of intimacy.
